Missa Solemnis: Beethoven at Notre-Dame de Paris
Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris, Paris - Main Hall
About the Event
Listen to one of the greatest masterworks in the realm of music at the beautiful Cathedral Notre-Dame in Paris.
John Nelson conducts Beethoven's only Mass, the Missa Solemnis, a work made of sufferance. Beethoven composed this beautiful piece at a time when he was completely deaf and had just lost his brother. Even though the composer confessed his desire to commit suicide, his energy will eventually overcome his desperation.
